About the Forsyth Center Galleries

The Forsyth Center Galleries of Texas A&M University is an educational and cultural institution dedicated to stimulating public awareness and disseminating knowledge of the arts.  We accomplish this by collecting, exhibiting, preserving, and interpreting works of art to enrich educational, cultural, and artistic communities regionally, nationally, and internationally.  This effort is in support of the educational goals of Texas A&M University, embracing its values of academic excellence, social justice, and freedom of inquiry.

Home of the Bill (‘35) & Irma Runyon Art Collections, the Forsyth Galleries house one of the world’s most extraordinary collections of English Cameo Glass, works by Louis Comfort Tiffany, Steuben Glass Works, and Mount Washington Glass Company. The collection also has more than 65 paintings in the Runyon collection.   The permanent collection includes works by Maurice B. Prendergast, Joseph Henry Sharp, Albert Bierstadt, Robert Henri, Winslow Homer, Childe Hassam, and Frederick Remington.

Connected to the Forsyth Galleries is the MSC James R. Reynolds Student Art Gallery, run by the Visual Arts Committee (VAC) whose mission is to provide the students of Texas A&M and its visitors opportunities to connect the visual arts with their personal, professional, and academic lives through art exhibitions (including student art work), gallery programs, artist residencies, and travel.

We are located on the second floor of the Memorial Student Center on Joe Routt Blvd across from Kyle Field.  Public parking is conveniently located at the corner of Joe Routt Blvd. and Houston St. in the University Center Parking Garage, which is adjacent to the John. J Koldus Student Services Bulding.

Our exhibitions change regularly, so come and visit us often!  We are open Tuesday from 9:00am-8:00pm and Saturday & Sunday from 12:00pm-6:00pm at no cost to our guests.
